The Milwaukee Bucks do not have another first-round pick until 2028. However it would appear they used their last one on a player that gets it done on both sides of the court, and off the court. MarJon Beauchamp was taken by Milwauked with the 24th pick of the 2022 NBA Draft. The Bucks also continue to draft players with inspirational stories. MarJon has been on a long and rigorous journey to get where he is today. He built on that story by buying his mom a home after signing his rookie deal.

Milwaukee seems to be stacking up on players who just “get it” off the court too. In an Instagram Live video, MarJon Beauchamp announced that he would wear #0 for the Milwaukee Bucks. In short, Beauchamp experienced homelessness, despair, and constant drawbacks during his journey to the NBA. As Beauchamp stated, he “came from zero… came from nothing.”
Traditionally, players drafted into the NBA follow the college route. Whether they stay for four year, are one-and-done, or somewhere in-between, it has been typical for young prospects to spend some time in college to showcase their skills and grow as a player. Over the past few seasons, though, more and more players have been opting for developmental leagues, such as the G League, in hopes of making it to the NBA. This is the route that MarJon Beauchamp took. It appears to have paid off as Beauchamp is now in Milwaukee, able to provide his family a new home, and now compete for a championship. Welcome to Wisconsin MarJon, you are fitting in just fine.
